Customer Review

on 31 August 2003
This film grabs you from the very begining to the very end. Mullan has opted for a 'naked truth' approach, stripped off any effects that would lead the sentiments to a certain direction, he leaves that to the powerful images and plot.( for example striking is the lack of music on all the shocking scenes of torture etc.)
Aided by the magnificent performances and the strong subject matter, Mullan delivers a film that operates on many levels, touching upon many issues, such as religious oppression, women's struggles etc.
One of the very few films that has made me cry with anger and sadness all five times that I've watched it.
Not recommended to strong-minded catholics. Essential viewing for everyone else.
